Is there anything better than decorating the house with style, spending little and displaying to everyone a play you created yourself? It's very good, is not it ?. And you can achieve such a decoration using drums. Yes, those tin barrels that are used by the industry for oil storage. Did you remember them now?
It was the industrial style that gave popularity to the decorative drums. This type of decoration prioritizes elements reused and with an appearance of "unfinished" or "something yet to be done", accentuating the rudimentary and sometimes even grossness of this type of decoration.
In addition to the decorative effect, the drums can also be useful and functional. You can avail them as table, bar, sink countertop or simply enjoy your interior to store objects.
Drums can be bought over the internet. On sites like Mercado Livre, the price of a 200-liter drum is on average R $ 45. The total cost to make the drum, in addition to the other necessary materials, is around R $ 100.
But let's really go to what matters: the step-by-step how to make a decorative drum. You will see that it is much simpler than it looks and, better, the drum can be totally customized. Many images on the internet show decorative drums referring to perfumes - the best known is the Chanel brand - and drinks. But that does not have to be a rule, you can create your drum with what most closely matches your decor and style.
Let's start? To do this, separate the necessary materials first:
- 1 can drum of the desired size;
- Sandpapers nº 150;
- Sleeve and damp cloth;
- Anticorrosive product (can be zarcão or primer);
- Ink Spray or enamel paint in desired color;
- Foam roller (if using zarcão and enamel paint);
- Adhesives, mirror, fabric and whatever else you wish for the final finish;
Step 1 : Start by cleaning the drum. For this use water and detergent in abundance, so that no trace of oil remains inside the drum;
Step 2 : Sand, sand and sand to remove all external imperfections of the drum, such as rust marks. When you notice the surface is smooth and even clean with a damp cloth or wash again if you prefer. Then let it dry well;
Step 3: Prepare the drum to receive paint and protect it from corrosion. This step is very important to ensure that your drum is protected against rust. To do this use zarcão or primer.
Step 4 : Here begins the stage of painting and you already start to see the drum getting the way it wanted. If you choose to use spray paint it is important to keep a distance of about 20 centimeters so that the paint does not drain. Depending on the color you choose, you will need up to four coats for a perfect finish. But this you can evaluate as you perform the painting.
Step 5 : Last and most fun step of creating the decorative drum. This is where you will choose the details of the drum and the final appearance it will have. For this you can use stickers with the theme you prefer, make a different painting or even risk a graphite to make it even more industrial. The drum cover may be coated with mirror, fabric or other material of your choice. Creativity is the boss.
